Police Involved Shooting (Brooklyn)

Remarks As Delivered By Chief Terence Monahan

At approximately 1052 a.m. Officers from the 67th Precinct responded to several 911 calls for a male with a firearm and a knife in front of a Laundromat located at 342 Remsen Avenue. Upon arriving at the location the officers encountered a 23-year-old male identified as Davonte Pressley, armed with a knife in front of the Laundromat. The officers repeatedly ordered the armed male to drop the knife at which time the male lunged towards the officers with a knife still in his hand. One officer discharged his service weapon striking the male 3 times in the torso. EMS responded to the scene and transported the male to Brookdale Hospital where he is in critical condition. A knife has been recovered at the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
